advance our cause. to discuss this question, we are very fortunate to have with us here today not only the book's author, joshua muravchik, but also three commentators who are highly qualified to discuss his book in the issues that it raises. let me briefly introduce all of the members of the panel in the order in which they will speak. joshua muravchik is a fellow at the foreign policy institute of the johns hopkins school of advanced international studies. he is the author of eight previous books, including "heaven and earth: the rise and fall of socialism," published in 2001, and "exporting democracy," fulfilling america's destiny. published in 1991. and he has also published almost literally countless articles in major newspapers and journals. he served as a member of the state department advisory committee on democracy promotion, and he is a member of several editorials awards, including i am proud to say that of the journal of democracy. on my far right, doctor a sollie who spent many years as a practicing physician. is the president and founder of the american task force on pale
the case went all the way to the u.s. supreme court which upheld the city's authority to force miss kelo to sell her property. this is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon, welcome to the cato institute. my name is roger pilon. i'm the director of center for constitutional studies which is hosting today's book forum. most believe the right to property is sacred and they have the right to do so because the constitution says nor shall private property shall be taken for private use without just compensation. they think their home is their castle. a phrase that stems from the 17th century jurist lord cook. unfortunately, over the course of the 20th century, that right to private property has been slowly eroded by a series of decisions that have come from the state supreme courts and the u.s. supreme court. early on in the area of regulatory takings, and more recently in the area of the full use of eminent domain whereby government condemns a person's property, not for use by the public but rather to transfer the title to another private owner for the purpose of economic development, and

to the doctor lately because you pulled something or because what used to hurt a little now hurts a lot? well, you're not alone. baby boomers are falling apart, but we can't stop exercising, right, because that's bad for us? and modern medicine can fix anything, right? well, maybe not. here's how one dedicated runner is dealing with the baffling contradictions. my name is john hobby. i'm an attorney in brooklyn, new york, and i'm 50 years old. (man laughs) how does that make you feel? ooold! growing up, i played lots of different sports. i played a lot of basketball. i played baseball and football. for the most part now, i run long distances, usually 2 or 3 times a week, i do some weight training 3 or 4 times a week, and whenever i can, i get out on my bicycle. when i can't get to working out, whether it be weight training, running; i feel bloated, i feel grumpy, and i feel like i'm missing something. there is a sort of broad cultural trend to feeling that you shouldn't be held back by limits and this can lead to a number of problems, one of which is a hard time accepting the reality of aging

lawrence is tracking these developments. he is joining us from los angeles. chris? >> reporter: frederica about a month ago, an iraqi citizen came forward and told the u.s. military about the possible location of captain speicher's grave. and it was in an area very close to where the military had found pieces of his shattered airplane way back in 1993. now the marines went to that part of the desert where another iraqi citizen told them he remembered an american jet crashing and told them he was there when the bedouins found captain speicher's body near the crash site and buried him there. so the u.s. military went out to that site and it took several days over the past week, but they did find captain speicher's remains. they found bone fragments, skeletal fragments, multiple skeletal flagments, actually. and then those were flown to dover air force base where the military medical examiner was able to match his jaw bone with captain speicher's accidental records and that's how they confirmed his positive identification. the family spokesman tells us just a few minutes ago that they are ex
to do that because of the mess the majority created of the conferenced bill and i use that term loosely as most of the funding levels and programs were determined not in a conference but by the house leadership and by my chairman. but when it came to counting votes, the leadership and the chairman had to do some dancing and started loading up the war supplemental with extraneous and unrelated items on -- all of which needed to get more votes. cash for clunkers was one of those items. my colleagues in the senate, senator feinstein in particular and senator collins, had some serious concerns with the house bill. senator feinstein tried to negotiate some changes to improve the program, but was rebuffed, as i understand it, by my chairman. basically they were told it was his way or the highway. here we are today, not one hearing on the cash for clunkers program in the appropriations committee, not one hearing on the needs of the program prior to receiving funds, no one hearing on how the first $1 billion has been spent, not one hearing on how much money the program will need to get through
at the u.s. embassy in baghdad. >> i'm very, very happy to hear that. i'm very worried about his friends. >> reporter: for their families, it's been a bewildering two days since their arrest. currently, we're only concerned about the well-being of joshua and his two other people fattal's father wrote in a statement to abc news. a statement department official says the americans were in iraq as tourists and accidentally strayed into iranian territory. iranians state television is hinting at something worse. they say the americans ignored warnings from guards to stay away from the border. and their detention comes at a time when the iranian government is accuse the u.s. of fomenting unrest in iran, instigating the protests that followed its disputed june presidential election. earlier this year, american journalist rock zan that sib barry was detained as well, accused of spying and jailed. >> i think there's a decent chance iran will portray these three as spies. and leave it up to the united states or these three individuals to prove their innocence. >> reporter: their detention is truein
. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you, j.j. >> so you met with a group of small business owners earlier this week, what were they looking for out of reform? >> they were frustrated and they want their health care costs to be affordable and to provide health care for their employees, but they are concerned about the taxes and mandates out there in the bill being proposed and they are corp worried about going out of business as a result of these things going to be required. >> so from your perspective. what does reform look like that helps small businesses? >> well, it is completely different than what's being proposed. in a bill i have sponsored, it allowed small businesses to group together. if you are a small business be with ten employees and one has a health care issue, it makes it very expensive. if you can group together with 100 other businesses, your buying power got better and your premiums will be much better reduced. that's one component of the system i would like to see. >> proposals do include exchanges where small groups will get to group together. >> well, what we
